7:03 am
welcome to "cbs this morning." good morning norah. happy halloween. >> good morning to you, charlie. >> it's moving beyond some states that set up their own health insurance websites have had problems of their own. >> and sources tell cbs news those websites are costing more than billion dollars. jan crawford is in washington. jan, good morning. >> well, good morning, norah and charlie. that's $1 billion with a "b" to pay for these obama care websites with the states who have set up their own insurance wages and that's being paid for by the federal government courtesy of taxpayers and some of the websites have struggled to get off the ground. with unusable for most administrators have pointed to efforts in the states and called it success. >> they're eager to enroll folks and that is going smoothly.
7:04 am
>> reporter: but people in some of those states may disagree with how smoothly it's going. one thing is for sure. the federal tax dollars are pouring in. the 15 states that opted to set up their own exchanges have set up $1.1 billion to launch and implement their own obama care websites, often paying the contractor to do the same job in different states. california has dedicated $359 million while new york is spending $161 million. in kentucky it's $100 million. and in oregon the price tag is $50 million. the president has pointed to oregon where 56,000 people have signed up for medicaid. >> that's 56,000 more americans that have health care and they didn't count on the website.
7:05 am
>> reporter: and that's a good thing. their applications came through the machlt clay johnson is a former member of the obama technology team. >> what we've done is created systems that enable this level of waste. >> reporter: he blames federal rults who went out over and over like cgi which won bids in five didn't states to help develop their websites. that's the same company now under fire for its role as lead contractor for the federal website. >> cgi federal had contracts with five different states, something tells me that they got paid five times for some of the same code. >> now cgi has had some better luck in some of those states like kentucky which is seen as a model. and other states are well under way, but charlie and norah, it goes back to the money, and why are taxpayers forking over a billion dollars on 15 state
7:06 am
websites that are going to end up looking pretty much the same. >> all right. thank you. you saw health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius in jan's report. she testified for 3 1/2 hours yesterday at a house committee meeting. she said it's an admittedly frustrating experience. >> let me say directly to the americans, you deserve better. i apologize. >> michelle snyder is responsible for the debacle. >> excuse me. hold me responsible for the debacle. >> you put their financial information at risk because you did not have even the most basic end-to-end test of the system. i don't want to turn over anything that is not confirmand reliable. >> well but that data comes out
7:07 am
every year. >> some people like to drink out of a yellow cup with a step. you're taking away their choice. >> there's no excuse for it. and i take full responsibility for making sure it gets fixed asap. we're working overtime to improve it every day. every day. >> the president also defended his health care law. he believes critics are not telling the whole story. cbs news political director john dickerson is in washington. john, good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> how does the president get on top of this? >> i think he gets on top of it by having a website that actually works. most obviously that's because he didn't want the biggest public manifestation of his signature law. he wants that not to be kind of
7:08 am
a flowing mess but also he wants it to actually work so that there can be this flood that they hope is good stories of people signing up. that's good for policy reasons because it means the law will be working but also from a crass public relation standpoint it means they can point to people and say, look the promises we make about law, it's true. they're happy. he needs those stories to come in. >> okay. but not all the problems are turning out to be true and he's had to modify some of them. so does that put his credibility at risk? >> right. the promises were always at issue with this law for the last four years. the president made promises and the people didn't trust him and that's why the question of keeping your doctor is so very important. the white house says well that only applies to 5% of the population. if you go back to when this law was being sold the president said that over and over again. it was the one piece of information people took in, and that's because it was a message that everybody had health
7:09 am
insurance. the argument was this. i'm unleashing this chaotic new program, but for you who have this that's okay. things won't change. that's what promises were meant to connell vai. now that things aren't turning out, people who have their own insurance have worries and they think that this new law as it goes into effect is going to somehow affect them and that's the real political damage that's possible when things don't -- when these promises don't turn out to be true. >> john as you point out, it's more the glitches on the website. it's the substances. he said no one will take away your insurance no matter what. yesterday in boston he said for the vast majority of people who have health insurance that works, you can keep it. he made some qualifiers in that new statement, didn't he? >> exactly. and the qualifiers are what's the problem here. all throughout this law the president has said just trust me, lit get better. they were really hoping once the website was launched you would
7:10 am
have da stay and real people. now that that's not happening, that's a problem. >> and, john on these new poll numbers by "the wall street journal" that shows the president's disapproval ratings, quite height his approval rating lowest ever, is this more than just a second term curse that a lot of presidents experience? >> well, it's a result of a number of things. people think the company is not going in the right direction and all of the things they see the president doing aren't related to making country go in the right direction. even if it's dealing with the republican shutdown that they blame the republicans for, it doesn't mean they think the president's doing a great job even though they may blame republicans more. the approval rating doesn't matter for him. he's not up for re-election, but the worry is the democrats who are up. >> and i was stunned that the majority of the americans no longer say they belong to either
7:11 am
party. people are more independent. that's new. thank you. and a new report says nsa is mon tring more. the "washington post" says the agency tapped into cables of data centers around the world. that's according to secret documents from edward snowden. meanwhile they're rejecting allegations that they spied on the vatican. officials say the story from an italian magazine says that's not true. the boston red sox are world choips. last night they beat st. louis 6-1. here's the scene at fenway park. it's given the city a much needed boost. mark phillips is in the city. good morning, mark. >> what an inning. the crowd in here stood up and got louder weight for the
7:12 am
magical moment. the triumph of perseverance. >> the red sox are the world series. >> reporter: bed lamb in boston. thousands of fans poured into the streets to celebrate the world series championship. ite tess first time in 95 years the red sox have won the world series. david ortiz was the world series mvp. >> this is for you, boston. you guys deserve it. >> reporter: outside of fenway park groups of fans ran through the streets pushing over cars, some were pushed over. boston is where tragedy struck six months earlier. ever since the tragedy in april, the motto for the team is boston strong. players grew beards all season long right through the playoffs and turned the baseball world
7:13 am
upside-down. >> these guys in uniform over here to be an able to come to work with them every day, to see the work they prepared and put in, the greater fans of this sport, it's one heck of a night. >> you can't get much better than that. >> what do you think of the city? >> i think city loves us and we think they're special. boston strong. we've coming alonge along. it's a special meet for us and for the fans. >> are you going to keep the beard? >> i hope so. >> the fans for decades sat around wait fi a way to loose are now part of winning. >> for anybody who loved
